Life of ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá
Through stories of life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, a careful study of His actions and frequent meditation on His Talks and Writings we can better understand the transformative power of the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh.
‘Abdu’l-Bahá affirmed time and again that He was a “herald of peace and reconciliation”, “an advocate of the oneness of humanity”, and an agent calling humanity to the “Kingdom of God”.
He was the Embodiment of what a Bahá’í (follower of His Father’s teachings) should be, serving as a model for all of humanity.

The Covenant is an answer to the question of religious succession that has been critical to all Faiths.
Through ‘Abdu’l-Bahá a Center of the Covenant, Bahá’u’lláh diffused His message of hope and universal peace to every corner of the world. This Covenant was the instrument that ensured the unity of the Bahá’í community and preserved the integrity of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings. Without ‘Abdu’l-Bahá as its Centre, the enormous creative power of Bahá’u’lláh’s Revelation could not have been transmitted to humanity, nor its significance fully comprehended.
